An external shock like the current pandemic can be a great opportunity to rethinking how we work. As more workplaces move from the traditional office to working from home, workers are increasingly exposed to new hazards.  When it comes to working from home, there is almost no escaping the use of display screen equipment. Daryl Tan, our Asst. Secretary of HFEM and chairman of the HFEM Northern Region was invited by FMM to give a short presentation on the Guidelines on Ergonomics Risk Assessment for Display Screen Equipment which was proposed by the HFEM’s technical committee to DOSH. During this presentation, Daryl had the opportunity to share on the various hazards and risk of using display screen equipment and the methodology of assessing ergonomics risk ranging from awkward posture to visual fatigue. Showing that the work of safety and health practitioners does not stop when workers step outside the traditional office environment.
